While gift-giving (and receiving) is undoubtedly the most exciting part about holidays every year, we can all agree that in 2020, everyone would be delighted to receive a positive surprise — you know, for a change. And if you love the idea of surprises, there is nothing better than a Japanese New Year custom of Fukubukuro "Lucky Bag" — the annual surprise hunt and bag snapping that marks the beginning of another year.
What is Fukubukuro?
Fukubukuro is a Japanese term formed from fuku (福, meaning “good fortune” or “luck”) and fukuro (袋, meaning “bag”), and therefore literally translates into “lucky bags.”
It is a popular Japanese tradition that traces its origins back to the Edo Period (although some argue that it started in the Meiji Era).
Resulting in creating the Fukubukuro bags, merchants filled with last-season items or excess merchandise at substantial discounts. The Fukubukuro tradition became widespread in the Showa Era when most department stores embraced it as
an annual event marking the new year’s beginning.
